The World of Warcraft is getting its own movie in 2016 titled, Warcraft, and yesterday the official film cast of the widely popular game was announced.
The actors announced for the movies are: Ben Foster, Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Toby Kebbell, and Rob Kazinsky, announced Universal and Legendary Pictures yesterday. They are still negotiating and waiting on Dominic Cooper.
Warcraft is set to begin filming in Canada this upcoming January, and will be directed by Duncan Jones, who also worked on the screenplay.
According to Polygon, the film was originally slated for a December 2015 release, but the film was push back to March 2016 so it would not have to compete with Star Wars: Episode VII.
One of the most widely played games of all time, Warcraft creators, Blizzard, have been able to draw millions of people to join their MMORPG.
The franchise has over 7.6 million users playing the game, according to Escapist Magazine. However, in the game's best times, that number was a staggering 12 million.
Recently the game makers teamed up with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to raise money for the organization. They added two new characters, with the proceeds from the purchase of the characters going to charity.
The two characters are a pet dog named Alterac Brew Pup and a mount named Enchanted Fey Dragon. They will both be available at the Battle.net/shop with the dog costing $10 and the dragon for $25.
$5 from the Brew pup purchase will go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation between now and New Years' Day, according to Polygon. WoW is also offering a $30 bundle that includes the dragon and dog for $30, which is a savings of $5, and another $5 will go to Make-A-Wish.
